72+ Movies About a Scary Societal Collapse

This list catalogs the best movies in which a scary societal collapse is present

Jesse Plemmons in Alex Garland’s upcoming epic war drama about a near future where the United States is at war with itself, Civil War (2024).

As our world becomes more antagonistic and less stable, turning to film to see what a societal collapse may look like is a terrifying ordeal. When you think about it many, many horror movies show a glimpse of societal collapse as part of their larger plot. What could be scarier than social order turning to dust at the same time a new nightmare (like the appearance of zombies, aliens and/or violent looters empowered by mob mentality) is unleashed?

Actor Timothée Chalamet went viral on TikTok for saying “I think it’s a tough time to be alive now, societal collapse is in the air, it smells like it.” Chalamet was in the apocalyptic film Don’t Look Up (2021) on this list.

Not only do we count on society to meet our basic needs (water, electricity, food) but our safety relies on the social contract of decency as expressed in our laws and (at least in theory) enforced by police and military. A system collapse means that this delicate agreement amongst individuals to cooperate could evaporate overnight. If people suddenly decide to stop delivering food (the global supply chain), maintaining public utilities and refraining from harming others, modern humans will be thrust into a situation they are entirely unprepared for: surviving in isolation.

Here are the best movies containing a scary societal collapse, you’ll also find some television shows included at the bottom:

Lifeboat (1944)

While John Steinbeck wrote the story at Hitchcock’s request, he was angry the director’s adaptation used racist tropes and anti-union jokes during the war effort and wanted his named removed from the project (20th Century Fox did not honor his request). Steinbeck won an Academy Award for Best Original Story for the film.

A survival film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and based on a story by John Steinbeck. Lifeboat mimics societal collapse in a limited setting after eight people survive a German U-boat attack and end up on a lifeboat together. The group alternates between conflict (fighting over rations) and cooperation (amputating the leg of an injured survivor). Lifeboat was one of Frank Darabont’s inspirations for his adaptation of The Mist (see below).

On the Beach (1959)

Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner fall in love as the world ends in On the Beach.

A romantic post-apocalyptic drama film starring Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire and Anthony Perkins. Set in a (then) future 1964, nuclear fallout from World War III has killed most humans on Earth and radiation will slowly reach the last surviving city, Melbourne, Australia. American and Australian naval officers and scientists work together to confirm their fate and enjoy their remaining days of life.

Dawn of the Dead (1978)

Fran (Gaylen Ross), Stephen (David Emge) and Peter (Ken Foree) try to survive the zombie apocalypse at a shopping mall.

George A. Romero’s follow-up to Night of the Living Dead (1968) zooms out to show the zombie apocalypse affecting more of society before focusing on a group of people who take shelter at a deserted shopping mall. The survivors enjoys the bounty the mall has to offer before it sinks in that no one is coming to rescue them. There’s also a message about consumerism and the inevitability of societal collapse in this film, as Peter (Ken Foree) remarks of the zombies, “They’re us.”

A remake, Dawn of the Dead (2004), is a great film in its own right and has a unique opening sequence showing the beginning of the zombie apocalypse/societal collapse from the perspective of an overworked nurse (Sarah Polley).

Mad Max (1979)

Mad Max was Mel Gibson’s second film role after studying at Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art. He was paid $400 for his first role in Summer City (1977) but made $15,000 for Mad Max.

A dystopian action movie starring Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky. Max is a police officer in a near future Australia where society is collapsing due to destruction caused by climate change. After a gang hurts his family, Max relentlessly pursues revenge in the Australian desert.

Testament (1983)

Testament was originally produced for PBS but ended up getting a theatrical release from Paramount Pictures.

A dark drama film showing the collapse of a small town, Hamelin, in the greater San Francisco Bay Area after the outside world is destroyed by nuclear war. A regular suburban day is interrupted when television shows suddenly go off the air and are replaced with a news announcement that nuclear devices were detonated on the East Coast. With radio silence from all major cities, the town decides to move forward with a high school performance of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. The next day electricity stops working and food and gas shortages start. Town members start to die from radiation poisoning. With no hope and nothing to do other than wait for death, the residents of Hamelin come to terms with their fate.

Then up-and-coming actors Rebecca De Mornay and Kevin Costner had small roles in Testament as a married couple, Phil and Cathy Pitkin.

The Day After (1983)

The influx of films showing the disastrous after effects of nuclear war in the 80s is a result of the Cold War.

The Day After was an incredibly successful television movie that was watched by 62% of viewers during its initial broadcast. It was the highest-rated television movie of all time until 2009. The film follows an ensemble cast of characters in the greater Kansas City, Missouri area as a nuclear war begins between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Heartland residents panic buy supplies and an EMP destroys the electrical grid and renders vehicles useless. Nearby military bases are nuked. Going outside becomes fatal. Looters are executed without trial while the president makes radio speeches about freedom and democracy. As the end credits roll, a disclaimer warns viewers that The Day After is fictional and a real life nuclear war would be “much worse” than what was depicted on screen.

Part of the disclaimer in The Day After.

Night of the Comet (1984)

The working title of the film was Teenage Mutant Comet Zombies.

A sci-fi comedy horror movie about an 18-year-old woman, Reggie (Catherine Mary Stewart) who accidentally survives the apocalypse by having sex (and spending the night in) a steel-lined projection booth at the movie theater where she works. Her 16-year-old sister, Sam (Kelli Maroney), also survived by sleeping in their steel-lined backyard shed. The next day, Reggie discovers that almost everyone on Earth has evaporated or turned into a zombie. Reggie and Sam hit the mall for guns and clothes and fight evil scientists for survival.

Threads (1984)

Threads has been praised as the first film to accurately depict the “full horror of nuclear war and its aftermath, as well as the catastrophic impact that the event would have on human culture.”

A powerful apocalyptic war drama television movie set in Sheffield, England during and after a nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. After the American military deploys a nuclear weapon at a Soviet base in Turkey, Britain descends into chaos as people panic buy and loot supplies. Sheffield authorities are given unprecedented control over citizens, phone lines are cut and travel is restricted. 12 to 30 million Brits are killed in subsequent nuclear attacks and the remaining citizens are basically left to survive on their own. Months and years later chaos still reigns as the country deals with violence, food scarcity and permanent damage to quality of life (cataracts, cancer, infertility).

Miracle Mile (1988)

Los Angeles erupts in chaos as nuclear destruction nears in Miracle Mile.

An apocalyptic thriller drama that takes place mostly in real time in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles. After sleeping through a promising date, Harry (Anthony Edwards) goes to a diner to find Julie (Mare Winningham). Instead, Harry is accidentally informed of the imminent destruction of most of the planet due to nuclear holocaust. When a businesswoman (Denise Crosby) at the diner confirms their impending doom and decides to flee to Antarctica, Harry stays to find Julie.

I think when I wrote it the intention was to wake people up and, you know, change the world.

Lord of the Flies (1990)

The title Lord of the Flies comes from one of the names used for Satan in the Bible.

A survival drama based on the 1954 book of the same name. Societal collapse in this film is simulated by a group of young military cadet boys forming a makeshift society on a deserted island after surviving an airplane crash in the Pacific Ocean. As the boys fight with each other for power, they become more unhinged and violent and the number of boys who wish to remain “civilized” as opposed to becoming a savage dwindles down to one.

The Trigger Effect (1996)

The Trigger Effect shows how ill-equipped Americans are to endure life without technology.

A thriller showing the speedy breakdown of society during a long power outage in Southern California. Waking to a widespread blackout, Annie (Elisabeth Shue) and Matthew (Kyle MacLachlan) discover they are unable to get needed medicine for their infant.

The next night an intruder breaks into the home and is killed by Annie and Matthew’s neighbors, all involved decide to lie and say the intruder was armed. The group then decides to flee to Annie’s parents house 530 miles away, and encounter more obstacles on the way.

The Stand (1994)

Rockstar Larry Underwood (Adam Storke) sings his hit song while the world burns.

A post-apocalyptic television miniseries that is an adaptation of Stephen King’s massive novel of the same name. After a a weaponized strain of the flu leaks out of a government lab, 99.4% of the world’s population is wiped out. The immune survivors are led by visions to build a community in Boulder with Mother Abigail or live as savages with the demonic Randall Flagg in Las Vegas. Eventually a small group from Colorado travels by foot to Nevada to have a final confrontation with Flagg.

The 2020 adaptation of The Stand shows more detailed effects of societal collapse on the protagonists, for instance, when Larry Underwood (Jovan Adepo) and Rita Blakemoor (Heather Graham) flee a band of gang-rapists in New York City.

King’s novel was also adapted into a 9-episode miniseries in 2020 with James Marsden, Alexander Skarsgård and Whoopi Goldberg in starring roles. This version features a new ending written by Stephen King and his son Owen King (who was also a producer and director on the project) in which Randall Flagg is shown to have survived. Ironically, filming was completed just days before the COVID-19 shutdown in March 2020.

28 Days Later (2002)

Writer Alex Garland and director Danny Boyle researched societal collapse and took ideas from real events that happened during social unrest in Rwanda and Sierra Leone.

This post-apocalyptic horror movie opens with an iconic montage of protagonist Jim (Cillian Murphy) wandering around a deserted London after waking alone in a hospital bed. Jim discovers that in the previous 28 days an epidemic of the “rage virus” caused a societal collapse. On the run from fast-moving infected, Jim meets other survivors and travels to a military blockade in Manchester where they have been promised safety. Instead, the group discovers that the soldiers hoped their message would attract female survivors they could imprison as sex slaves and again are forced to fight for their lives.

A sequel, 28 Weeks Later (2007) follows American efforts to create a safe zone in London after the entire country of Great Britain is presumed killed by the rage virus.

Time of the Wolf (2003)

Time of the Wolf is a bleak view on how humans might treat each other after a societal collapse. It’s helpful to know that in real life communities come together after a disaster more often than how Time of the Wolf sees it.

A very grim French post-apocalyptic drama set in an unknown time after an unknown disaster. The Laurent family flees Paris for their country home, but are assaulted by the strangers who have taken refuge there. With no supplies, the family is turned away by people they once knew and have no choice but to hope for a train that can return them to Paris.

Children of Men (2006)

Unlike most action movie heroes, Clive Owen never handles a firearm in Children of Men.

A dystopian action thriller thought to present a somewhat realistic glimpse of life during a societal collapse. Set in the United Kingdom in 2027, following two decades of total infertility due to climate change, the country is operated as a police state. Refugees are turned away or executed. Theo (Clive Owen) is tasked by his activist ex-wife Julian (Julianne Moore) with safely transporting a refugee, Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey), the only pregnant person in the entire world.

The Mist (2007)

Mrs. Carmody (Marcia Gay Harden) uses the chaos put herself in a position of power by preying on the fears of other survivors and using religion to establish a hierarchy in which she is safe and others are protected only as long as they do her bidding.

A sci-fi horror movie about a group of people trapped in a supermarket by the sudden appearance of a supernatural mist containing various deadly monsters. Although the Lovecraftian monsters in The Mist are fearsome, what’s really scary are the human beings. Actress Laurie Holden compared the events of The Mist to what hurricane refugees experienced at the Louisiana Superdome during Katrina. The Mist is also remembered for having one of the most upsetting endings in cinematic history. This ending differs from Stephen King’s novella, but the author has praised writer/director Frank Darabont’s new ending and called it “frightening”.

Dan Miller (Jeffrey DeMunn) explains the danger religious fanatic Mrs. Carmody poses to the rest of the survivors.

The Mist was also adapted into a 10-episode miniseries in 2017. While it is nowhere near the realm of quality as Frank Darabont’s movie, the miniseries does show more detailed storylines of people dealing with societal collapse. One subplot involves a group of people trapped in a mall who have differing ideas about how to survive together.

I Am Legend (2007)

Neville’s apartment shows that he has “borrowed” famous paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, like this untitled piece by artist Keith Haring (bottom right).

A post-apocalyptic action thriller based on Richard Matheson’s novel of the same name. Will Smith stars as Dr. Robert Neville, a  U.S. Army virologist who has survived a pandemic that has left him as the only living man in New York City. Surrounded by vampiric “darkseekers” that remain hidden during daylight, Neville passes the time gathering supplies, searching for other survivors and attempting to find a cure for the virus.

The Road (2009)

Viggo Mortensen was so committed to method acting while filming The Road that he was asked to leave a Pittsburgh shop because the owners thought he was homeless.

A post-apocalyptic survival film based on the book by Cormac McCarthy. After an unknown extinction level event, a father (Viggo Mortensen) and son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) travel on a road searching for supplies and dreaming of finding safety while avoiding roving bands of rapist cannibals. Brutal and bleak, The Road shows a world full of traumatized people (as a result of the extinction event before the film starts), some of whom revert to barbarianism and some who hold on to their humanity as they all struggle to survive.

Contagion (2011)

Jude Law’s character in Contagion (2011) capitalized on the chaos to become an influencer and make money selling snake oil “cures” to panicked civilians.

A pandemic thriller that follows an ensemble cast during a global pandemic of a highly-contagious respiratory virus. Released almost a full decade before the COVID-19 pandemic, Contagion did a pretty good job accurately guessing how Americans would respond to such a health crisis like its depictions of panic buying and Alan Krumwiede’s (Jude Law) storyline of selling scam cures. As the fatality rate of the fictional disease in Contagion was much higher than COVID-19, the film also showed more looting and violence as the population dwindled and civil unrest increased.

‘The Purge’ franchise (2013-2021)

When ordinary citizens do not participate in the first Purge, a political party (New Founding Fathers) sends masked mercenaries to slaughter civilians in The First Purge (2018).

In the dystopian near-future America of The Purge films, almost all crime (including murder) is legal during an annual 12-hour period known as The Purge. Through a series of anthology films (and two seasons of a television show), The Purge digs deeper than typical survival movies by slowly revealing layers of malfeasance, showing that what looks like disorganized chaos is actually a well-orchestrated plot to keep a political party (the New Founding Fathers) in power and execute poor people. In the latest installment, The Forever Purge (2021), the New Founding Fathers’ plan works too well and a group of their followers refuse to stop murdering after the Purge ends.

These Final Hours (2013)

These Final Hours shows how different people cope with societal collapse and the knowledge of their impending deaths.

An Australian sci-fi thriller that takes place after an asteroid hits North America. Australians have just twelve hours before the firestorm reaches them and obliterates life on Earth. James (Nathan Phillips) selfishly leaves his pregnant mistress, wishing to spend the day hedonistically enjoying an end-of-the-world party. On the way, he rescues a girl (Angourie Rice) from rapists and eventually has a change of heart, seeking to reunite her with her family.

World War Z (2013)

Leonardo DiCaprio was involved in a bidding war that would have seen him portraying Gerry Lane in World War Z but lost to Brad Pitt and Paramount.

An action horror movie depicting a zombie apocalypse from the perspective of a retired U.N. investigator, Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who is rescued with his family and brought to a Navy ship in the Atlantic Ocean. With other military officials from around the world, Gerry seeks to discover enough about the virus to help create a vaccine. This allows the audience to see how different world governments respond to the crisis.

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

10 Cloverfield Lane is one part of a doomsday scenario presented in the Cloverfield trilogy.

A sci-fi horror thriller that finds an injured woman, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), awakening imprisoned in a bunker following the chaos of widespread blackouts. Her captor Howard (John Goodman) insists that the outside world is unsafe and he has rescued Michelle and is holding her hostage for her own good. Although it’s hinted that Howard had at least one victim before the events of the movie, societal collapse means that he was able to kidnap and hold Michelle hostage with much more ease as there was no one to stop him or look for her.

A Quiet Place (2018)

One terrifying aspect of societal collapse is the lack of healthcare. In A Quiet Place, Evelyn (Emily Blunt) gives birth alone in a bathtub.

A sci-fi horror movie following the Abbott family in the aftermath of an invasion of alien predators with highly sensitive hearing. Because the family already lived on a farm and knew ASL (daughter Regan is deaf), they have been able to survive longer than most. When matriarch Evelyn (Emily Blunt) struggles to give birth in silence, her husband (Blunt’s real life husband and the film’s director John Krasinski) arrives to lure the aliens away.

A sequel, A Quiet Place Part II (2020), follows the Abbott family as they continue to seek safety while on the run from the alien invaders. Two additional films, A Quiet Place: Day One and A Quiet Place Part III will be released in the next few years.

Silent Night (2021)

Old friends and their families gather for one last celebration on the night they plan to ingest suicide pills to avoid a painful death by poisonous clouds that will soon fill the sky.

A British black comedy that is nevertheless unsettling in its depiction of a near-future where the government has issued everyone suicide pills in advance of an impending doomsday scenario. A group of friends gather for an elegant Christmas dinner party at a country estate. As it is their last evening of life, the children are allowed to swear and secrets are discussed openly at the table. As the night goes on, some of the group debate whether they want to take the suicide pill or take their chances with the unknown.

Civil War (2024)

Kirsten Dunst plays war photographer Lee Smith, Wagner Moura is journalist Joel, Stephen McKinley Henderson is New York Times reporter Sammy and Cailee Spaeny is newcomer Jessie.

Written and directed by Alex Garland, Civil War is a 2024 epic war drama released by A24. The film portrays a near future in which the United States is a year-and-a-half into its second civil war. A group of journalists travel to Washington, D.C. in the hopes of getting the last interview with the current president as the capital falls. Along the way, they encounter American refugee camps, sadistic extremists, and soldiers fighting for all sides.
